One of my favorite parts of any Superman show ever is in Lois and Clark: the New Adventures of Superman. Basically, Superman violates a really stupid injunction against saving people using his powers, so he is temporarily sent to prison. But when the Metropolis police take mugshots of him, everyone in the room (including the police) uses it as a photo op with Superman like
people villainize superman’s “perfection,” but when he fails to save someone, when he doesn’t stop every disaster, or win every battle, you say “he’s superman, he should have saved them.” you complain about him when he saves the day, you complain when he doesn’t. you call him “too perfect,” but fail to see that he isn’t, not even superman can be everywhere at once.
Teri Hatcher, who played Lois Lane on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, will be joining the cast of Supergirl this Winter for a multi-episode arc.
According to The CW, Hatcher will be playing a mysterious new role that will become the new Big Bad of Season 2. No word on whether her character will be human – possibly Lillian Luthor’s successor as the head of Cadmus, for instance – or alien, with possible ties to the mysterious beings hunting Mon-El.
